A solid American porter, it is rich, but not overly robust, this brewery has some potential.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear, garnet-tinted cola brown with a short, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla over roasted black and coffee malts.. touches of licorice too.. well-presented. The flavor found well-roasted chocolate, coffee, and licorice notes at the core.. vanilla and charred roast laced throughout.. finished dry and roasty, with a hit of acidity. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with moderate carbonation.. good balance throughout. This was surprisingly good.

12 oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Looks like a glass of Coke.
Mild bready malty aroma with dark bread and mild hops.
Sweet malty flavour with mild roastiness, some bread and some sweetness. Sweetness makes this a bit unpleasant.

Bottle. Wow - solid brew from Potosi, truthfully I’m pleasantly surprised. Soft roast with coffee and some mild sweet chocolate. Lighter palate. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is my second beer named Gandy Dancer, the first being a Golden Ale from a local brew pub. I find that there’s also an Impy Stout in Youngstown, Ohio, a California Common in Burlington, Vermont, and a Gandy Dancer in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for which four beers have been added to the site, yet all remain unrated. Interesting (or not). On to this Gandy Dancer...
It pour4s a deep chestnut body with the slenderest of tan heads. The aroma is dark caramel, some chocolate, and a dull earthiness. It seems a bit thin, slightly watery. The flavor is much like the aroma, a bit light. The finish is quite abrupt. Just okay.
That’s two Gandy Dancers down and six to go.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Potosi brewpub in Southwestern, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a creamy beige head that has some nice retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, chocolate, floral hops and hint of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, some metallic texture with flavors of toasted dark malt, chocolate, a hint of lactose and some floral hops. Finish is semi-dry and has an excellent balance of toasted dark malt and mild bitterness that slowly disappears.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle from Woodmans in Beloit. This beer is almost completely black with just a little red. A one finger tan head and a good amount of carbonation floating up to meet it. The aroma is roasted but also some sweeter vinous notes, too. Less roasted notes in the flavor. In the background are bitter citrus hops and they add some brightness. A little vanilla and cocoa. This is quite nice and has a smooth feel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Old Fashioned. Opaque blac, nice off white head. Roasty chocolate aroma. A touch of a watery mouthfeel, but the hits the mark stylistically. Mossy, with some borderline Stout nuances. A little thin bodywise, relies a little heavily on the specialty malt. Drinkable, but still sub par and unimpressive. Mild chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at 8th Street Ale House. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy thin tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, oatmeal and light coffee. Creamy body tastes of dark malts, chocolate, coffee and mild dark fruits. A tad thin but decent.
